GATE8 Cabin MATE v 2.0 (Wheeled Backpack Cabin Luggage)

£159.00
EVERY CABIN BAG INCLUDES FREE UK DELIVERY, FREE UK RETURNS & 5 YEAR MANUFACTURING WARRANTY

Business travel doesn't need to be an epic chore. Forget the queuing, forget the stress of waiting to check in your bags and forget the creased garments at the other end.  The Cabin MATE is a cabin size wheeled backpack, carry-on garment bag that uses clever, functional design to take all that pain away from you so you can travel the way you want to and not struggle like the others.

Built to fit 98% of airline cabin restrictions (including Easyjet, Ryanair, BA, Aer Lingus, Lufthansa, German Wings and Monarch), this wheeled cabin bag is the compact travel buddy you've always wanted. The main compartment contains a removable hanging bar that enables you to pack your trousers, dress, shirts and other garments with minimal creasing (up to 3 days clothing). There is also plenty of room to store shoes, underwear, toiletries, documents and other smaller essentials.

On the front of the Cabin MATE there is a detachable laptop compartment that houses a laptop up to 16'' inches in size plus a tablet and smaller items like money, passport, earphones and business cards. The laptop case means you can keep you tech safely with you on your flight whilst your Cabin MATE sits snug in the overhead locker.

This new V2 version gives you endless carrying options with hideaway backpack straps on the main carry on bag and another set of straps on the zip-away laptop carrier. Travel the way you feel comfortable.

Did we mention it is made from 1680D ballistic nylon and fitted with heavy-duty YKK zippers? That's right. The Cabin MATE is surprisingly lightweight but built for even the most demanding business traveller. The clamshell design also ensures an easy route through airport security.

*We now offer FREE UK RETURNS on all our cabin bags if it doesn't suit your needs (excludes personalised bags).

Good bag
Generally I'm very happy with this bag. Can fit enough in for a working week away with shirts trousers etc plus a change of clothes for the evening. The wheels are very smooth & quiet. Zip off laptop bag is very handy. My only 2 minor niggles are: 1) With a laptop in, on occasions the bag it wont stand up (it falls forward) GATE8: With a round of design improvements, we are pleased to confirm that this issue is now COMPLETELY resolved. Any previous stability issue no longer exists with this product 2)The straps on the laptop bag keep adjusting themselves (the loop mechanism could do with being a bit tighter). GATE8: We have modified the straps and are pleased to confirm this issue has been resolved.

The result. 10 out 10. A wonderful piece of luggage and worth every pound I packed in main case: 1 pair of walking boots filled with socks and underwear. 1 pair sandals Three pairs of trousers (loved the strap) Three vest tops Four tops 1 swimming costume I pair pyjamas Bag of non liquid toiletries. Loved the sides that popped together and stopped everything falling out on opening. Loved the strapping and zipped mesh cover in main case. Couldn t use the toiletry bag. To small and rigid plastic with no give and didn t want to have the bother of opening the case at security. Used a floppy plastic Eagle Creek one in laptop bag instead. Would have liked a zipped mesh cover and strapping in both parts of case. In the laptop bag I had the laptop, various chargers, empty handbag, toiletries, papers, wallet etc: I cannot extoll the virtues of the laptop/day bag enough. The main case, with parts making it easy to lift, went above seat, while the laptop bag unzipped and fitted underneath seat in front. i had everything I needed in front of me. Wonderful. It also became a day pack, when going out for the day. As I got out of the taxi at home, the driver said. I can t believe you ve been away for two weeks with just that case. Thank you. It will be in use again this weekend, but only on a train trip in the UK. Worth every pound.

Spent much time searching for an overnighter with a detachable laptop bag before I found this. It's a really good little bag, and the feature with the detachable laptop bag transforming into a rucksack is perfect. Only complaint I have is that it needs to be packed a bit carefully regarding weight so or else it easily falls over.

Cabin Crew Approved
Lightweight and sturdy, this bag fits well into the overhead locker. It fits all I need into the main compartment for work and nightstop kit and if on a stopover can detach the backpack to avoid taking another bag with me. I use the integral wash bag for easy access to my liquids for passing through security. The generic colour ensures the trolley bag is compliant to uniform standards. A unique and stylish bag with clever extra storage options and compartments.

Have been thinking about buying one of these for ages and finally took the plunge. When it arrived I thought I had made a mistake as I couldn't see me getting enough clothes in there. Wrong !! got everything I wanted in there for a 4 day break and could have taken more. Only one niggle is that one of the poppers on the lining has already broken. I will be in touch with Gate8 to see if they will sort it out. A very well thought out travel case though.

Great experience
The 2 highlights for me are how easy it is to use on public transport (trains, buses) & how versatile it is. The zip off ruck sack works really well for me too. The only criticism, if any, is the positioning of the handles on the laptop bag. They are on the top rather than the side, makes it look like a bit of a Roy Cropper.Overall though, brilliant. Thank you for swapping it. Their suggestion GATE 8 leant me the previous model for the trip and then exchanged it for a new one immediately afterwards. ÿIt''s rare to find that level of customer support and then the bag itself was exactly what I needed - very pleased with it

Mk2 is Almost Perfect
I bought the original version of this case and was very pleased with it apart from one fairly major flaw. With the laptop pack zipped on, the case would not stand up, due to the weight of the laptop and stuff tipping it. This was a widely reported flaw by customers. I've now bought the mk2 and am pleased to report that the tip up problem has been solved. In addition, the mk2 has straps to allow you to carry the whole bag on your back. I've only used the mk2 for a long haul (3 nights away) at the moment and I was in business class, so I could have gotten away with a much larger carry-on. The bag did its job perfectly though. It comes into its own when you're travelling on the budget airlines for a couple of days away. I've had no problems getting the mk1 onboard as carry on and it means I can leave the clothes part of the bag at the hotel and only have to take the laptop back into the office. The quick release toiletries bag is great when going through security. Some suggestions from me for a perfect bag would be a shoe compartment, quicker un clipping of the opening and most of all, padded straps on the laptop backpack. Re the unclipping, at the moment there are two press studs on each side that stop the top of the clothes bag from falling open past about 45 degrees. When you do want to open the bag fully to pack and unpack, it's a bit of a faff to fasten the press studs. Just need to find a buyer now for my mk1 case. :)

Great for business travel
This is a super bag for short-stay business trips - whether by air or rail. The bag is light weight and the zip-off office a practical addition. The only thing missing is an in-built luggage tag (as per Delsey). Attaching a luggage tag around the handle is fine, but they always have a limited life. Other than that and excellent product.

FYI I travel every week taking a minimum of 4 flights, that's without the trains, underground taxis etc. I even walk sometimes. I have had many travel bags over the years and can genuinely say that my GATE8 bag is the only one that really works. .... and the accessories do too Keep up the excellent work

This is my second bag from Gate8,the first being the trifold garment bag. Both bags are simply excellent, the cabin mate I've found very useful, carrying enough clothing for 3 days, laptop and all that sort of kit. The only thing I think is missing is a neat name tag as found on the Trifold bag. Keep up the good work.

Well designed with the business traveller in mind. Bigger clothing compartment than you think, with room for up to 3 nights wear. Internal strap and netting keeps clothes very neat. Very durable. Zips are high quality and very secure. The œ 149.00 price tag seems to be a bit high and luckily I managed to get a 20% discount code via Flybe in flight magazine.

The Perfect Business Travel Bag
I have been waiting for someone to develop this concept for years. It is quite simply the best bag for me. I tend to go away on business for 2-3 days at a time. I always travel the evening before, because red-eyes are no good for meetings. This allows me to leave the bag at the hotel and only carry a light rucksack. As I travel EadyJet and FlyBE a lot, it fits the 'one-bag' policy perfectly. I have had the bag for 2 months now, and it's great. Thanks you Gate8

I have travel c. 2 weeks per month for work, have done for for years. On my most recent trip I bought your Cabin Mate and Micro-bag at Birmingham Airport. Oh my goodness, best luggage purchase ever, I couldn't be happier, so convenient and takes all the stress out of airports. Any chance you could create a stack-able shoe bag I could fit over the trolley handle. It would let me use the Cabin Mate for those slightly longer journeys also. I know I could have bought the Garment Mate but I loved the design and simplicity of the Cabin Mate. Thank you, Steve Kane (now a stress free traveler! :)

In theory, this bag looks great. When it first arrives, all good. On my first journey, I really struggled to unzip/zip the laptop section off/on to the main section. After all the though and clever stuff that has gone into the design, they used a plain old fiddly zip to connect them and with weight in both bags it's very difficult to do. I had to take 5 to sort it boarding and unbarring. I put it down to me not knowing how to do it properly. But, after much practice ... it's just difficult to do. And, comes apart like that coat zip that's always half way up your stomach :(. On my second journey, the little clasp at the bottom came off so they no longer connect. Everything else is fine but the connection of the 2 sections is terrible.

I love it ! I am a regular overnight female business person. One that travels with lots of shoes, toiletries, straighteners etc. This is perfect for one or two nights away. I was looking for something that meant i wasnt dragging a suitcase, handbag, laptop case on and off trains, tubes, cabs etc. I had tried large handbags etc but theyre heavy and when you arrive you may want something smaller. This solves it all with ease and its so versatile. Its easy to pull and even when packed full its not too heavy to carry and a breeze to wheel (its quiet and smooth). Its hard to find fault BUT I need to be balanced - perfection would be alternative colour option (red, yellow etc), a mesh on both sections (the spilling is starting to annoy me no matter how I open it - toiletries are in non mesh side because of clothes hanger on the mesh side. I would also see about a 4 wheel option as its caught me out when ive wanted a quick turn - in London youre manipulating around everything ! If these were resolved i would say it was perfect.

I love my Cabin Mate! It has become my constant companion on my weekly 3-day work cycle in the Channel Islands. Being able to zip the backpack off the main bag means I can get the main bag in the small lockers on the ATR72 aircraft and avoid having to check it in. Also I can leave the main bag at he hotel and just take my laptop etc to the office in the backpack. Then zip it all back together when in transit. Plenty of room for 3 days clothes. Perfect!

Very much looking forward to taking this on a multi-destination trip for a month+, will keep all my essentials and a weeks worth of requirements with me at all times, plus a check-in of replaceables and dirty clothes as the trip progresses. Definitely a weight off my mind to travel like this. My only suggestion would be if the front laptop bag had expandable zips so it could carry more when not being used as a cabin bag; ie during the non-travel part of the trip, but otherwise the product looks great.

The bag is well made and feels sturdy and the materials feel high quality. The shoulder straps and usefull as well as being wheeled and its easy to manover and pick up and carry on your shoulder. The detachable front laptop bag has been superb you just unzip it, and easy to remove when you get on the plane to stow under the seat in front. Also to leave to large back at the hotel and just take this small bag to meetings, much more professional looking and no risk of esposing your bag contents in meetings. The only thing I would have prefered is the detchable laptop bag to have a shoulder strap rather than ruck sack design.

Perfect for short trips
I regularly make 1 - 2 night trips on business and have been searching for a carry-on bag with adequate space for clothes and business equipment for quite some time. I opted for the Gate8 Cabin Mate and do not regret it at all. The bag is well built, from excellent materials; in particular, the roller wheels are almost silent and zips are sturdy and well arranged. The balance between clothes (60 - 70%) and business space (30 - 40%) is perfect for me and clothes stayed crease-free despite being upright for most of the journey. The only improvement I would suggest would be to move the fixing of the elasticated retaining straps from the bottom of the case to the top. In their current location, the straps press too much on clothes and could result in creases. I didn't use them. This minor gripe aside, I am delighted with the product, and was not surprised when a friend of mine, who travels more than me, described my Cabin Mate as funkyand asked me where I got it from. He'll surely be another satisfied customer very soon.....

Good product
Waited till I've used the case a couple of times before reviewing. Pretty much lives up to it's billing, was able to carry laptop and clothes for a couple of days. Didn't have any issues with the bag falling over as others have mentioned. Only small problem was trying to re-attach the two parts together before getting off the plane, but once I was able to get where I had more room was fine. Only complaint really was I ordered at a busy time so took 3-4 weeks for delivery but my credit card was charged on the day I ordered. I always find that annoying

Nice case and it covers everything. Only one thing but pretty emportant. The lid won't open flat because the feet block the hinge. That makes it difficult to lie it on a surface to pack and unpack.

Great luggage
So pleased with this cabin luggage, it meets all my expectations and more, made with very high quality, durable materials it is smart too. Room for enough clothing for most short trips. The internal rail is a clever addition. The front organiser is very useful. In fact, this luggage has more organised space than my small wheel-on suitcase. Highly recommended.

Mr
An excellent piece of kit! Very outstanding too with the large monogram on the bag (which is custom and I chose to be large.) What pleased me the most was that I could get on a FlyBe flight with it and although I don't need to dress-up on most of my trips I got 4 days worth in it. Lightweight and easy to carry when the trolley handle is stowed. The laptop bag is easy to separate if needed - some aircrafts overhead lockers aren't deep but the main section fitted nicely too, whilst the laptop section went nicely under the seat in front of me (not a mean feet if you're travelling on smaller turbo-prop aircraft. Highly recommended and look-out because in some inflight magazines there is a discount code!

Top bag
Bought the bag at a show a few weeks ago. The people I dealt with were very helpful and gave me a proper demo of the bag. It turned up on time and it is versatile, practical and stylish. Very happy with my purchase.

So good i ordered 2 more
I ordered these bags for my son and his partner. I and they were delighted with the design and the quality. Top product. The only slight downside is that they are a little heavier than I would have liked. Had some problems with the ordering process but this was resolved. Ordered 2 for us now.

Very happy
Use the rucksack part daily. I often carry two laptops and it's big and strong enough to cope. I use a Grid-It to keep my cables and accessories organised. The big wheely bag I use about weekly - very neat and so far no problems. Particularly like the velcro on the clear toiletries bag.

This bag does everything it says it does and absolutely meets my needs for trips away of up to 3 or 4 days. Good flexibility, and appears to be very well made.

The G8-CABR GATE8 Cabin MATE v 2.0 is an incredibly well-designed cabin bag. I appreciate all the possibilities to pack smart and compact. Unfortunately, it weighs 1 kg too much, but you can not get it all.

Perfect travelling companion - excellent service
A a frequent traveller for business, my Cabin Mate has proved the perfect travelling companion. It's so practical and I can't imagine life without it. I had a minor issue after purchase which was swiftly put right by the fantastic GATE8 team. Highly recommended.

Mr
I recently returned from a short holiday in Italy flying by Easyjet and after seeing a Gate8 advert in Easyjet's flight magazine, I became inspired to try out their Cabin MATE v 2.0 (Wheeled Backpack Cabin Luggage). Bought and received today, it certainly ticks all the positive boxes! Outstanding quality in the workmanship has gone into creating this smart, stylish and very practical cabin bag. It looks and feels as though it will last forever - very strong and durable materials. Overall very clever and considered design. I like the way the trolley handle retracts neatly into a zipped pocket. I'm not a business man, but I find it ideal for carrying enough essential clothes (4 or 5 shirts, a sweater, underwear, socks) and compact wash bag. That's enough for a week. This is half the size of the cases I use to use - freedom with less is lighter and easier to get around. It is a small company - British made. I wish them success!

A really great carry on bag that is so flexible with everything thought of - quite annoying really as I just cannot find anything wrong with it or any improvements that I can recommend! Quite unlike me. Thank you Gate 8 for a perfect product. Cheers John

Finally a practical overnight bag
I've been looking for a bag like this for a long time. It holds more than first glance would have you believe. Everything has been thought of and the zip off backpack is perfect - big enough for my laptop and bits and pieces for a day out of the office. It's good quality too. Maybe just an in-pocket phone charger and it really would be the perfect bag!
